Just Breathe – Gladioli and Stocks arrangement

with Freesias and Flowering Wax

It’s been a looong winter. Heck, it’s been a long almost-two-years! You couldn’t be blamed for feeling like you have more in common with a slug than your usual vibrant self.

It’s a curious mix of always-on-the-edge anxiety and and outright apathy as we face an interminably long wait for life to come back as we knew it.

So we take a deep breath and take stock of all the things that we’re grateful for, to restore our sense of calm, creativity, optimism and anticipation of the good times around the corner. And we’ll fill that breath with wonderful things, like the sweet scent of new season stocks and luxe freesias that are in this week’s box. A breath of fresh air for your home – snowy white, fresh and fragrant.

Have this moment to yourself to just breathe and let your worries drift away for a while as you arrange this week’s stunning blooms.
